About this project
Waugh Thistleton Architects asked FJL to build and install solid douglas fir
office desks to accommodate the architect’s growth.
Measuring over four metres long FJL used a clear 25% sheen lacquer to
bring out the different colours of that naturally occur in North American
timber. The variation of colour is typically due to the age and location of
the tree when cut for timber.
Although douglas fir is a consistently pale sawn timber it is almost impossible to tell what colour will show through once finished making each
desk truly unique.
